Fourth Annual CPR Challenge to condense to one day, three sessions
Block it like it’s hot
This year’s goal is to reach 100 certifications Chad Rhoades Correspondent
The fourth annual CPR Challenge will be held at Carmichael Recreation Center Nov. 20. The event is in memory of former professor Dale Sayers, who passed away from a heart attack in 2004. Campus Recreations decided it would be an appropriate way to honor the distinguished professor and his family, which is actively involved in the event. The goal of the event is to raise awareness by increasing the number of CPR certifications and saving lives. The cost of the event is $20 for students and $30 for nonstudents. Each session is five hours — the first class begins at 9:00 a.m., the second at 1:00 p.m. and the final session starts at 6:00 p.m. Registration will be offered before each
section, which allows students and nonstudents alike to register right before the session begins. “The cost of the event is far cheaper than if participants were to get certified through another program,” Assistant Director of Special Events Peter Koutroumpis said. Alternative classes can cost up to $50, and with registration before each session it is very accessible for participants. The event is a joint effort between the University and the American Red Cross. Participants have the opportunity to get either certified or recertified in CPR and first aid. The event is open to both students and the community. Faran Dulberg, special events administrator and CPR certified lifeguard, said he believes the ability to perform CPR is an invaluable quality to have. “You never know when something is going to happen, whether it be on campus or driving — it is just a good

For the past two weeks, the Department of Student Health Services has been holding clinics across campus administering vaccinations for the H1N1 virus. The vaccine is free to students with a University I.D. and to those with a Blue Cross Blue Shield membership. “I absolutely think the vaccine could save lives,” Jerry Barker, associate vice chancellor of student affairs, said. The H1N1 virus was declared a pandemic this year by the World Health Organization. Although the
symptoms are similar to the regular seasonal flu, the H1N1 virus differs from the seasonal flu in that it preferentially infects younger healthy people, with the majority of cases occurring in people under 25 years old, according to the WHO. Workers at the clinic in Talley Student Center said that more than 1,000 people showed up last week for the vaccine. Chris Schaefer, a sophomore in sports management, was one of students who took advantage of the offer. “My mom was yelling at me to do it,” Schaefer said. Some students, like Kent England, a junior in parks, recreation and tourism management, were required to get the shot. “I’m going to India over winter break and it’s one of the required vaccinations,” England said.
Still, students like Zach Parker, a junior in psychology, are apprehensive. “I don’t trust the swine flu vaccine at all,” he said. According to Barker, the danger of swine flu has been blown out of proportion and he is concerned with the foreign ingredients in the vaccine. Barker said the H1N1 vaccine could have adverse side effects in certain individuals, as with any vaccine, but that this was a trade-off for the thousands of people that would otherwise have gotten sick. “I’m amazed that this is still an issue with students,” Barker said. He said although approximately 35,000 people die each year from the seasonal flu, only 35 percent to 40 percent of those eligible for vaccination actually choose to get it.

in CPR also looks good on a resume. Certification shows how individuals are constantly seeking to gain more knowledge that is not only useful to them, but to others as well, Koutroumpis said. Koutroumpis said during last year’s event 65 people participated in the challenge. The goal for this year is for participant involvement to reach 100. This year’s event has been condensed into one day, opposed to the two-day schedule in the past. Condensing the event to one day allows students to attend any of the three sessions to take the CPR class, the first aid class or both, Dulberg said. The University and the
American Red Cross are trying to make it more convenient for people to attend by offering three sessions throughout the day. CPR skills are taught and practiced in the classroom and there is a written multiple choice test at the end. In the recent years the American Red Cross has made progress in making the classes more participant-friendly and the learning process has become simplified. The Red Cross is stressing the importance of timing. Koutroumpis said in recent history, the class has become more focused and less intimidating. “Our main goal is to put away the fear of people not getting involved,” Koutroumpis said. “They [people who are certified] will be more comfortable in being the prime person acting or giving support.”

Celebrate Vegan Awareness Month N
Vegans constitute between .2 and 1.3 percent of the U.S. population according to several national polls. The population is even larger on college campuses. The combined vegan and vegetarian population on college campuses is approximately 8 percent.
University Dining has made some progress in accommodating students with vegan lifestyles. But it needs to work on improving its vegan menu options in an effort to encourage a better discourse with the vegan community on campus — especially during Nov., Vegan Awareness Month.
ovember is Vegan Awareness Month and with it presents the campus community an opportunity to learn more about veganism. Veganism, which has its roots in the mid-twentieth century, is often attributed, at least in name, to Donald Watson — the British founder of the Vegan Society. People who abide by its principles endeavor for a lifestyle that excludes the use of animals or animal products for food, clothing and all other uses that vegans deem as inhumane toward animals or that are opposed to the “natural order.” Veganism is sometimes associated with speciesism and animal rights advocacy, but for

many others it is simply a pathway to a “healthier lifestyle.” Several national polls have the percentage of Americans that ascribe to traditional veganism somewhere between .2 and 1.3 percent. The United Kingdom, where veganism is also widely practiced, has a vegan population of approximately .4 percent according to The Times. Students should take some time this month to understand the vegan lifestyle and appreciate the many students on campus who are vegan or some other member of the vegetarian tree. The dining halls have taken
great steps in recent years to identify vegan options on their menus and provide accommodation for a population segment that has rapidly grown during the last several decades. Vegans, and vegetarians in general, are particularly widespread at universities — a poll conducted by “Vegetarian Journal” places the approximate number of vegetarians on campuses at 8 percent. Such a large population deserves more than accommodation, though. Providing a salad bar and a few side dishes for vegans is not the same as producing vegan entrees. For instance, Friday’s menu
at Fountain Dining Hall has vegan options, but they are almost entirely side items. Dining has correctly identified a need in the campus dining community, and for that it should be applauded. But now it needs to take the next step and begin presenting a wider array of vegan dishes in addition to the standard side items. Students and University Dining should use this month as an opportunity to discuss veganism and learn more about this growing community.
Resist political control of journalism
continue to be confounded by the indecisiveness of philosophical opposition in our region to the idea of partisan political control and the direction of j ou r n a lism in North Carolina. The not ion t hat writers should be subjected to harsh punitive David actions for resi st i ng outMcKnight freelance writer, side political interference musician in journalism and other forms of writing and, for that matter, the arts, seems to have gained a seamy currency or plausibility for certain situations. In the Research Triangle, it is imperative that the three research universities — N.C. State, UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University — refrain from entering into agreements with government agencies, the political parties or elected officials at the federal, state or local levels to cooperate in or help facilitate the transfer of original writing and research from independent writers and editors to political operatives or governmental agents. The same responsible attitude and position of nonmeddling should also apply to efforts by writers in our region to gain employment in journalism or communicationsrelated positions in the press, academia and elsewhere. I would offer this advice to college journalists (and indeed, to all students), regardless of what they aspire to after graduation: make it clear among your circles of family and friends, places of religious faith, offices of family attorneys and future centers of employment in the private or public sector that you do not wish to have your personal productive output relegated to the confines of information-gathering for groups or individuals interested only in the outcome of the next elections. If you make a decision to work in political campaigns or for that matter in the offices of elected officials in North Carolina or Washington, then that is an honorable choice. Indeed, I was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina in 1978 and for the U.S. House of
Representatives in the Charlotte area in 1988 and 1990. But for young adults expecting to work in journalism or in other positions independent of partisan politics involving communications skills, then it must be made clear that it is not acceptable for limitations on work productivity or future employability to be imposed by political, academic or other organizations not interested in the progress and advance of one’s personal life or professional career. The U.S. Constitution (the First Amendment) and the North Carolina Constitution (the Declaration of Rights) provide clear and unambiguous protections of freedom of press and other forms of freedom of expression in American life. In fact, at North Carolina’s first state convention to consider the U.S. Constitution, held in Hillsborough in July and August 1788, delegates voted to defer ratification of the new federal plan of government pending the addition of a Bill of Rights to preserve the freedoms and liberties won during the American Revolution. With Congress having taken action to send a Bill of Rights to the states for approval, North Carolina delegates meeting at a second state convention in Fayetteville in November 1789 voted to ratify the U.S. Constitution, becoming the second to last of the original 13 states to do so. Thus as we observe the bicentennial of the presidency of James Madison (1809-1817), certainly among the most inf luential authors of the U.S. Constitution at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787, we should renew our commitments to freedom of the press in this country and remind leaders of government, academia and the political parties that the well-being of the Republic depends to a considerable degree upon the openended workings of a free press in all its forms. It is up to journalism organizations in return to be aware of the precious dimensions of constitutionally protected freedom of the press and to exercise these vital democratic and republican liberties responsibly in order to preserve freedom of expression for future generations of Americans.

Creating successful teaching
e all have our favorite teachers. Maybe it was the teacher who would give your class candy after a test, or the teacher who pushed you until you discovered the limits you set on yourself Jessica weren’t reEkstrom ally limits Staff Columnist at all. Regardless, teachers and college professors can make your year fulfilling and exciting — or, a living hell. Conventional wisdom is when you have a professor you really like, you are more motivated to do well in his or her class. Maybe that’s not true for everyone, but I know it’s true for me. When I’m more motivated to do well in a class, I know I get more out of it, even if it’s subjects I’m not fond of. I recently did a survey of some students on campus and identified the traits they thought made a good teacher. I tried to blend some together and highlight the main points: Creativity. I realize lecturing is sometimes unavoidable but it is too easy to loose students when a class is stagnant with lectures. Throw in a game or a funny video here and there. A few
weeks ago we played monopoly in my sociology class to learn about social stratification. I walked away from the experience with an understanding of the topic and was looking forward to the next class. Respect. And yes, this goes for students too. If professors treat their students with respect, the students will likely return the favor. Treating students like children will makes students want to play t he role of children. Scolding as a first approach w ill only drive us away. It should be self-explanatory to bring professionalism and respect to the table. No busy work. Giving homework and class work is fine. But understand that students have other classes and a life aside from your class. Giving us pointless assignments is not sensible or stimulating. Admit fault. Nobody is perfect. If you make a mistake, own up to it. Admitting fault is always better than blaming it on us or coming up with excuses. For example, if you put a review problem on the board in a class of 300 students and no one can tell you the answer, it’s probably not the best idea to say, “You guys need to pay more attention.” If you went over it properly, at least one person out of the class would be able to answer it.

my classes last week and the teacher replied with, “I obviously didn’t do a great job last class. Let’s go over this again…” Students whipped out their notes and listened to what he had to say. Humanize yourself. I’ll admit, when I see one of my professors at a coffee shop or somewhere around campus, I get that butterfly feeling like I’m seeing a celebrity. But when professors start the first class of the semester with some background information, like where they went to school and what they like to do, it reminds students that professors aren’t just robots; they’re human too. Lastly, and most importantly, like what you do! I know we all have our good and bad days, but it’s always refreshing seeing a professor anxious to start the class. Being excited about a certain topic can spread around the classroom — this goes for students too. We have the opportunity to get a great education at a great school. That should be reason enough for excitement.

Vegans getting creative, eating cheap During rough times, vegans on campus find ways to eat cheaper on student budget Story By Ramya ramaswamy | photo illustration by jose tapia Whether it is due to a craving for a healthy lifestyle or a passion for animal rights, vegans are growing in number across the country and on N.C. State’s campus. Despite the belief the lifestyle of a vegan adds more stress to the wallet than it removes from the body, vegans on the campus of N.C. State are finding ways to eat delicious foods minus the expense — and animal products, of course. “I eat out fairly often in order to keep up with friends, but I’ve found it simpler to maintain my diet with a homecooked meal,” Maria Rock, a senior in natural science, said. Rock contends being vegan, however, does not automatically lead to more expensive taste. “It is not the vegan products that are more expensive,” Rock said, “but the need for fresh produce over ‘boxed’ items like cookies or cereal.” Jeannine Erasmus, a senior in creative writing, agrees with this notion. “Most foods are around the same prices,” Erasmus said. “It’s things like fresh fruits that are expensive.” Commodities such as fresh produce and fruit can often be found for a fraction of retail price at the local farmers market, which provides guaranteed fresh produce while supporting homegrown crops and the local farming industry. When it comes to being scrupulous
with money at chain stores, however, Rock said it’s not hard to shop for less. “I buy most of my groceries at Whole Foods,” she said, “but I do not necessarily buy things labeled ‘vegan.’” Rather than buying “vegan” labeled products, Rock said she opts to purchase items that use only vegan ingredients but are not labeled as such, as they often tend to be less expensive to purchase. For Rock, her method is simple. She uses the rule of five. “I try to buy foods with only five ingredients or less to help determine if it is vegan or not.” Despite these savings secrets, Rock said she is still frustrated by the lack of mainstream brands that support her lifestyle. “A lot of items I buy are not mainstream, so finding coupons is harder, which contributes to a higher grocery bill.” When looking for edible options in town, most choose to eat in due to budgetary reasons rather than lack of locations. “I don’t eat out much because of money,” Erasmus, who only recently became vegan, said. “There are a few great vegan places around Raleigh, though.” As the capital city’s vegan population continues to expand, restaurants in and around Raleigh — particularly downtown — are making more efforts to show off their vegan-friendly menus
to customers. Noelle Falle, office administrator of Neomonde Bakery and Deli, said her business fully supports the rise of the vegan lifestyle and tries to do all it can to offer affordable, appetizing menu options for the group. “More than half our menu is vegetarian or vegan. We range from hummus to satish, and have a special of hot ratatouille,” Falle said. With the economy in its current condition, Falle said Neomonde understands the issue of eating cheap and emphasized their prices are affordable, vegan or not. “We buy most of our produce from the farmers market, regardless,” Falle said of the ingredients in the restaurant’s meals. In doing this, it is easier for some businesses like Neomonde to offer natural menu items at a price that doesn’t break the average college student’s bank account. Knowing the vegan lifestyle is healthy for both the body and the environment has encouraged Falle and Neomonde, as a whole, to continue fostering the needs of the Raleigh vegan community. Despite the obvious room for growth available in the category of affordable options, however, campus vegans are optimistic for the future. “I would like to see more vegan options at restaurants and coupons that cater to providing more natural and
vegan-friendly cheap eats
Looking for a vegan-friendly meal on a college student’s budget? If so, here are a few places in the area that have menu items to serve your needs.

Blount St. Type of Cuisine: Sandwiches/Subs
organic foods,” Rock said. “Other than that, I have not had many other qualms.” While State’s vegans contend their vegan lifestyle does add some additional strain to the wallet, it is the general consensus that the slight increase in spending is worth the benefits of being a vegan.

Students know basics of recycling, cutting down energy usage ‘Going green’ has never been easier
green living tips 1) Take shorter showers — have a competition with your dorm or suite mates to see who can take the shortest one and the losers have to buy the winner dinner.
Laura Wilkinson Staff Writer
From utilizing recycling bins to unplugging appliances, students are taking the initiative to “go green” in residence halls, apartments and classrooms. Quinn Chavez, a freshman in First Year College, said when he goes green, he does it as his part to help the environment. “I cut down on my shower time and try to turn off the light when I leave the room,” Chavez said. “If it’s aluminum, plastic or metal, it’s in my recycling bin.” David Dean, outreach coordinator for the Office of Sustainability, said the majority of the University’s carbon footprint comes from electricity usage. “Anything students can do to reduce our electricity use is a positive thing,” Dean said. Emily Reinhardt, a sophomore in zoology, said she turns off most of her electrical appliances, such as the lights, the television and the computer, when they are not in use. “I don’t know how much of an energy drain the appliances they give us are,” Reinhardt said. “Most of my stuff is all plugged into a power strip. I know you’re supposed to turn things off when you’re done, but I don’t unplug my power strip.” Dean echoes this, as he said students should get into the practice of unplugging appliances when they are not in use. According to Dean — and to the surprise of some — power is still pulled from the power grid if and when plugs are plugged into outlets.
2) Empty the red recycling bin in your room into the larger blue bins outside. 3) Report leaks, running toilets or other building problems to your RA’s or RD’s. 4) Turn off the water while you brush your teeth. 5) Turn off your printer when not in use. 6) Unplug your chargers when done charging. 7) Your computer uses just as much energy in screen saver

Engineering freshman Mike Tanner places a can into a recycling collection bag held by Victor Saxena, a sophomore in biological and life sciences. “We recycle and we hope you will too,” Sexena said.
Aside from these things, however, Dean said there are
other ways for students to reduce energy use.

Dean said. “It will help save water. Turn off your printer when it’s not in use. You can also turn your computer to hibernate instead of screensaver. The screensaver uses just as much energy as if [the computer] was fully on.” A nother thing students can do is invest in more ecofriendly fixtures such as the light bulbs that Chavez uses in his residence hall. “My desk lamp does have an eco-friendly light bulb,” Chavez said. “One of those spirally ones. They’re not as bright, but they get the job done.” What happens, however, when students have no choice? Reinhardt said she has had troubles with the heating system in her residence hall in the past and it is really outdated. Some students may open windows when they encounter this problem, but Dean said

this is not always a good idea. “Don’t open a window in the middle of winter,” Dean said. “It’s going to cool the building down and the heating system has to work harder to heat the building.” However, he also said when it gets hot outside, it is all right to open some windows and give the air conditioning system a break. When all else fails, though, recycling is always a tried-andtrue option. The only problem, Dean said, comes from budget cuts and limited staff — there are only a few people in charge of the recycling bins. “If the blue [recycling] bins are full,” Dean said. “[Students] can call the recycling office or go to ncsu.edu/recycling and report that the bin is full. Report problems you see and communicate with your RA’s and Facilities.”

prove to our critics that we can play football and we can stop people, that’s from our point of view.” Clemson averaged 42 points a game during its current fourgame win streak and boasts one of few offenses in the country hotter than State’s own, which has averaged 40 points per game the last two weeks. It is no secret the key to the Tigers’ success has been their emerging Heisman candidate in the backfield, senior running back C.J. Spiller. Coach Tom O’ Brien said he could think of no player in the ACC currently better than Spiller, who has gained 329 yards and scored five touchdowns in three career games against the Pack. “Absolutely, from what I’ve

That run at the end opened it up,” Horner said. Though coach Sidney Lowe’s team certainly did not dominate the opposition from start to finish, he said he liked what he saw and believes his young team will improve, especially if the veterans provide the type of leadership they did in the opener. “I think you saw some of our youth,” Lowe said. “We’re really a young team, a very young team when you talk about numbers. We’ve got some guys
seen, I don’t see anybody that’s controlled a game as much as he has,” O’Brien said. “Especially the last couple of weeks, during this four-game win streak of theirs, they’re averaging 40 points a game and he’s certainly taken it to a higher level in those games.” Burgess said the defense, coming off arguably its best effort of the season in holding Maryland to 270 total yards, will have to find him every play before the snap if they want to contain Spiller, who comes in fresh off his career-high 165 yard day last week against Florida State. “You have to contain him because he’s such a dynamic player,” Burgess said. “When you think Clemson, you think C.J. Spiller and what he can do. You have to keep an eye on him; have to know where he’s at on the field at all times. If you don’t, he can gash you.”
in there where that was their first live game, so to speak. In time it will be fine. I thought that the veteran guys that were in there kept control. Meanwhile one veteran sat the game out for what Lowe called an “academic problem.” Senior guard Farnold Degand didn’t dress for the game and is out indefinitely. ‘’I wasn’t pleased with Farnold’s effort academically,’’ Lowe said. ‘’He’s eligible, so that’s not the problem, but we have rules. Until he shows it and I’m satisfied with it, he won’t play.’’

Smith walks the walk
During the losing streak the team recently ended, many players attempted to make a difference with various comments and speeches. That all ended in a brief team meeting the Friday prior to the Maryland game, and McCuller said he expects his team to continue to focus more on what needs to be done than on what needs to be said Saturday. “We lost a couple games in a row, I speak my mind, Willie [Young] has said what he had to say,” McCuller said. “Enough talking has been done, it’s time to go out there and put it all together. We had a meeting on Friday [before Maryland] and it was like two seconds. It was like, ‘Enough’s been said, let’s go win,’ and that’s how we broke it down and we got the job done.” “I think were steadily moving in that direction.”
Smack talk between former teammates doesn’t faze junior forward as he knocks down free throws, leads team to opening win Ty Johnson Editor-in-Chief
The basketball team’s 16-point victory over visiting Georgia State Thursday featured an as-expected contribution from Tracy Smith as he pumped in a game-leading 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in N.C. State’s opener. What maybe wasn’t expected, though, was that 10 of those points came from Smith’s prowess on the free throw line. Smith was 59.3 percent from the charity stripe last year, but he said he’s been working in the offseason and after practice on his foul shots. “I actually work on my free throws every day after practice,” Smith said. “I stay an extra 10 to 15 minutes, and I think It showed in the game.” And, according to Smith, he was counting on contributing in a big way to the win because of who was on the opposing sideline. “I’d been talking junk to Marques Johnson, who went here my freshman year,” Smith said of Johnson, who played one season for Lowe. “I’ve been talking junk on Facebook, on the phone.”

ourselves. He just spoke from the heart, really, and I guessed it worked because we won. Besides talking it over and getting ready mentally, the most important thing, in my mind, was to prepare well in practice. I think that was the difference last week – we really approached it like we should. We worked on replicating that effort in preparing for Clemson. We’ll see you at the game. -As told to Kate Shefte
Forward Tracy Smith looks on as former teammate Marques Johnson of the Georgia State Panthers moves towards the goal. Johnson went on to score two points, while Smith scored 18.
And on the court, according to Smith. “I was just telling Marques ‘you know nobody on your team can stop me right?” Smith said. “So one time he was like ‘make your free throws, I know you can’t do that.’ I stepped up to the line, knocked both my free throws down and after that, the rest of the game, I just
talked a little junk to him and he didn’t say nothing else.” Johnson, a redshirt junior, said Smith’s prowess at the free throw line showed he had improved. “I was surprised,” Johnson said. “When I was here, that was one of his weak points. Tonight he definitely hurt us with all his free throws.”

Toney’s Take: Week 11
Wolfpack looks to corral Spiller, keep bowl hope alive
More than a feeling
The football team is looking to remain bowl eligible with a win over red-hot Clemson
So. We finally did it. And I have to say, it feels great. After the Maryland game, I was just overjoyed we got the w in and it seemed like everyone’s sprits were up. It’s definitely a feeling I’m hoping to experience again. Toney Baker Everybody came back for Pack Halfback homecoming, and we were glad to get a win for the all of our supporters. Former players, alumni – Jerricho Cotchery, who used to play for the Pack and is now with the New York Jets, was there on the sidelines – they wanted to come, watch a good game and see us win, and we were able to do that. It was good to get it started on the right page. After the game, just when the clock went down, going onto the field and watching everyone chase down Michael Lemon… all that joy. Just looking in the stands during the Alma Mater and thinking ‘finally’…seeing everyone so happy…that was a great picture. The good news is everybody knows we can win now. These few remaining games have a lot at stake for us. Clemson, they’re going to be good. But now we think we can get it done. They’re a good team with a lot of athletes. It’s traditionally a hard fought game and they’ve got big ambitions in this league. We’ve got to come ready to play and they’re going to be looking to win just like we are. All the work and all the talk finally gave us the result we wanted. You guys may have already read about this, but Coach O’Brien gets one of the other coaches to come speak to us the night before games at the hotel. It’s a good tradition and I really felt like it helps. Coach Bridge, I believe it was, told us a story about this man who was cutting down trees and he felt like he was putting so much effort into chopping wood. Each week he would give the same amount of effort and he would cut less trees. He felt like he was giving the same effort, and then he went to his boss, who said, “well you have to change your blade – it’s getting dull.” He compared that to us. He said we had to mentally prepare to take that step. Coach Willis spoke to us last week, and the message was just “enough.” Enough losing, enough feeling sorry for

Tyler Everett For the first time since defeating the now No. 8 Pittsburgh Panthers in late September, N.C. State is looking to follow up a win with another victory when it takes on No. 24 Clemson this Saturday at noon at Carter-Finley. After entering Homecoming weekend on a four game losing streak, Pack players were finally once again able to enjoy themselves after defeating Maryland with the same score as their last win, 38-31. “It was a breath of fresh air,” redshirt senior right tackle Jeraill McCuller said. “It was a real big win for this program. I think it kind of lifted guys’ spirits and gave a sense of hope around here that there is still a bright future for this program and this season.” As it needs three more victories to become bowl eligible, State almost immediately turned its focus toward preparation for Clemson, a team that has won four games in a row and could potentially claim its first Atlantic Division title

getting up defensively,” Mays said. “When we came in at the half, they were playing harder than us on defense. They were getting offensive rebounds and they were getting up on us on defense, pressuring us. We weren’t doing them like they were doing us.” The Panthers stayed within striking distance for the first six minutes after the intermission, and with 13:44 remaining, the game was tied at 37 and hanging in the balance. State finally took over after that point and pulled away, outscoring the Panthers 32-16 the rest of the way to account for the final 16 point margin of victory. “In the second half we turned up the defense and it led to some easy baskets.
C.J. Spiller, running back: Heisman hopeful Spiller is looking for a slew of NCAA and school records. He is the ACC’s career leader in all-purpose running, having broken the record against Maryland earlier this year. He leads the nation in allpurpose running through games of October 24 and is second among active Division I players in all-purpose running yards Rashard Hall, safety: Hall, a redshirt freshman, needs one
interception against the Pack to establish the Clemson record for consecutive games with an interception. He has had at least one pick in four straight games. Compiled by kate shefte
A Common Thread Though it is not as often publicized as it was in years past, the match-up between Clemson and State is referred to as the “Textile Bowl” due to the impact the industry has on the economies of both North and South Carolina. In addition, both N.C. State and Clemson boast well-respected textile colleges. Each year, North Carolina textile manufacturors donate money to State’s scholarship fund in honor of the Pack’s MVP from the Clemson-State football game. However, the performances have not been easy chose from – in its history, Clemson has compiled a 19-9 advantage in the Textile Bowl. Source: N.C. State athletics
